The page turning on my paperwhite is both sluggish and inconsistent. Sometimes it works normally, as my previous Kindles did; but other times it seems stuck, and if I get impatient and tap again, I eventually skip a few pages. Has anyone else experienced this, and what is the solution? I'm an early Kindle adopter, and have had one of each generation, but never encountered this.

This happens for me once in a blue moon--I sometimes think it is a formatting issue with the book I'm reading. :-D

You can also turn pages by swiping your finger across the page; that can help you get "unstuck."

I've seen my Paperwhite get a bit sluggish after download lots of books at once, while it indexes the books in the background. You can see if the Kindle is indexing books or other documents by searching for a nonsense string like ;aslgja;ldkgjapokda. The result will be 0 items found, and then how many books are still being indexed, if indexing is still in progress.

How many books on your Paperwhite? Some people have reported their Kindle getting sluggish with more than 500 or so books on it.
